Before Deciding

When our representatives are making important decisions that impact all of our lives I believe it is important to ask one basic question before making
those decisions,
Is this good for
the children?

Just imagine what our world would be like if that question was asked prior to making decisions about going to war, the environment, education or healthcare.

On Monday's show of 11/5/18  WSA181105  our first guest Claudia Levin swoops in as the Pumpkin Fairy Godmother to start the show with a blessing.

Our second two guests Caitlin Quinn and Zach Neeley talk about the need for parents to talk to their children about sex at appropriate times.  Especially the role of consent in sexual activity needs to be discussed.

The whole Verity team is passionate about ending sexual violence in Sonoma County and all over the world. Both Caitlin and Zach will be facilitating a workshop for Parents and their teenagers How to Talk about Consent on Monday November 12th at the Sonoma County Library Santa Rosa Central Branch, 211 E St, at 7 - 8:30 PM.

Our final guest Georgia Kelly talks about her work in Conflict Resolution by Effective Communication.   Realizing the role of pride and overcoming its often immediate reactions is a big consideration, as are setting boundaries.  Georgia will be givng a Effective Communication and Conflict Transformation Workshop this coming Saturday, November 10 at the Sonoma Community Center from 12 noon to 5 PM. RSVP at this event link.

On Monday's show of 10/292/18  WSA181022  our guest Becky Hobbs talks of her journey in music and to the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame, which also led her to produce a musical in honor of her 5th Great Grandmother Nanyehi, also known as Nancy Ward, of the Cherokee Nation, who was honored as a great warrior woman but who spoke out for peace between her and the new European settlers in the 1700s. Listen to Becky help bring Nanyehi alive as a messenger of peace for today beginning with the women, as Elaine plays 5 of the songs from the album Nanyehi: Beloved Woman of the Cherokee.

Specials


 Gloria Allred  On Monday March 5, 2018,  WSA180305 Elaine interviewed Gloria Allred, who shares her journey from teacher to attorney advocating for women's rights for 40 years. Gloria talks of what sustains her in her committment to social change.  Gloria's hope is that this year will be known as the Year of Empowerment for Women, and she certainly is a mentor as she confronts rich and powerful men Harvey Weinstein, Judge Roy Moore, Bill Cosby, O.J. Simpson and even the President of the United States as she represents courageous but hurt women.


Erinn BrockovichErin Brockovich was our second guest on Monday's show of 7/9/18,  WSA180709  . Erin shares her story on becoming one of the most successful consumer activists in taking on PG&E in Hinkley, CA, in 1993, about which a movie was made called Erin Brockovich. Erin encourages us to break free from the box of other's expectations and to develop the self-esteem needed  for the long and persistent fight for justice.  Erin comes to Sonoma County to help those who were victims of last October wildfire storm that appears to have been sparked by PG&E's negligent behaviour in protecting their equipment from nearby brush and trees as required as a public utility. Erin warns of legislation that would shield PG&E from accountability in future wildfire disasters in California, inspite of the corporation's vast wealth.
